two words

"More cow" has been part of Oliver's vocabulary for a long time but there have not been a lot of other two word phrases, until now. He referred to his very chapped thumb as "boo boo" for many months. Suddenly this week it has become "boo boo thumb". Technically I guess that's three words, but you get the idea. Here are a few more favorites:

  • Mama sits (when he wants me to sit down with him, he also pats the spot he would like me to occupy)
  • ChewChew outside (when Chewy wants to be let out into the backyard - very useful when the babysitter doesn't notice him sitting by the door)
  • Mama cereal (this one was new today - I guess he's letting me know he knows it's not his cereal)
  • basketball game (guess what Oliver and CD did while I was shopping on Saturday?)
  • apple sauce (could be one word, I suppose)

There are more that I'm not remembering at the moment. He's in the midst of a real language explosion, beginning just before we left for England. He's visiting the Infant Language and Learning Lab Thursday. I may have to asked the PI about it, and what I can do to make the most of this interesting window of words.
